Candlelight Events

Every year, the Friends host a candle light ski in the park. It is a great time to get out and see the park when the ice is glittering and the sounds are hushed.

You'll see us there around the campfire, serving up warm drinks and friendly tales or taking time out to enjoy the trails.

Winter Candlelight Ski

Candlelight Ski for Jan 21 has been cancelled due to poor conditions.

Trail location will be determined based on weather and snow conditions.

Concessions and a bonfire are usually the plan, check back later for details.  Amenities to be provided will be a warm fire, fixin's for smores and concessions for sale. Make sure to bring your warm cheer! Mark your calendars!

As always, any and all help is greatly appreciated. Throughout the winter we will be preparing candle bags. The day of the event, we will need help placing and lighting candles. If you would like to help the day of the event, please show up about an hour before (around 5PM).

Fall Candlelight Hike

The 2017 Fall Candlelight Hike has not yet been scheduled.

Last year's hike was in an alternate area due to damage on the Lakeview Trail.  We held the hike on a portion of the Meadow Valley Trail between the Amphitheater and Twin Valley Campground.  The start area was the Amphitheater/Trails' End Shelter.  S'mores fixin's were provided along with a nice campfire.  The Iowa County Astronomers had equipment to watch the stars.
